The breathtaking paintings by young Spanish artist Ruben Belloso show the power of hyperrealism in relation to real-life aesthetics. The high level of detail of these art pieces is mind-blowing, as the painter successfully captures every pore and wrinkle of his subjects.

Belloso is especially good at painting older people, as he realistically represents the signs of aging. His extraordinary talent is visible by the way he paints body parts like eyes, skin and the hair. In order to give his pieces an ultra-realistic touch, the artist makes sure to include every detail, including everything from eye blood vessels to freckles. Additionally, the eyes of the subjects are so real that they seem to be staring at you.

Winner of multiple prestigious awards, Ruben Belloso has exhibited his work around the world.
